Removal of Prolene Sutures
Good evening, I'm wondering if Prolene sutures used in a skin tightening procedure (interrupted 4-0 sutures to suture the fascia to the muscular fascia, and 4-0 & 5-0 sutures to close the skin in the preauricular area continuing via the earlobe to the scalp following the hairline) can still be removed several years after surgery, and if so how this could be done. Would this require an extensive incision? Reason for removal is continuing swelling and discomfort of the skin. Thank you in advance!
